E. A HISTORY OF THE NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA 
CONFERENCE OF THE METHODIST CHURCH 

By 

William Thomas Brown 

SECTION I 

INTRODUCTION 

For me this is a historic moment. For this kind of honor only comes 
every two hundred years. Long before we celebrate the quadricentennial, 
the four hundredth anniversary of American Methodism, if there be any 
Methodist Church at that time, all of us who are living today will have long 
since gone to our great reward. 

In all probability, two hundred years from now, there will be no 
Methodist Church. For by that time Methodism will have lost its identity 
in some form of Regional or World Church. I shall say more about that at 
the end of this paper, 

SECTION II 

THE NEGRO IN GENERAL METHODIST HISTORY 

Before dealing specifically with the history of the North Carolina- 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 45 



Virginia Conference, I shall say something about the role of the Negro in 
general Methodist history. I shall also point out the part playd by a 
Negi-o, Henry Evans, in the early history of Methodism in North Carolina. 
For. as I see it. we need this knowledge to give us a better perspective 
of the history of the North Carolina-Virginia Conference. 

For information on the role of the Negro in American Methodism, 
I am indebted to Bishop Willis J. King, retired of the Methodist Church. 
Writing in Volume III of The History of American Methodism, Bishop 
King says: 

One of the regional groups which was set up in the unification of 
the three American Methodist Churches was the Central Jurisdiction. 
This Jurisdiction was unique in that it was organized on a racial 
rather than a geographical basis, in contrast to the other five Juris- 
dictions of the united church. It was composed of the 'Negro Annual 
Conferences, the Negro Mission Conferences and Missions in the 
United States of America.' 

The Central Jurisdiction is a symbol of the past and present 
history of the Negro in Methodism during the nearly two centuries 
of its existence in Am.erica, but more, it is a practical demonstration 
of the efforts a great ecclesiastical organization, under most diffi- 
cult social and political conditions, to include in its membership the 
suits achieved have not always been ideal; and further that the Central 
most diverse racial groups. That the technique followed and the re- 
Jurisdiction itself, as measured against the ideal of genuine Christian 
brotherhood, leaves much to be desired, are good examples of John 
Wesley's idea of the need of going on to perfection. 

To appraise properly the Central Jurisdiction, therefore, one 
cannot begin with the setting up of that structural arrangement in 
the reorganized church in 1939, but must start at the very beginning 
of the Methodist movement in America and trace the Negro's connection 
with it to the present time. Such a study is intriguing and proves con- 
clusively that whatever the institutional relationship may have been — 
or may happen to be at the particular moment — in the history of both 
the Methodist movement and the Negro, the two belong together. 

The Methodists, because of their own relatively low social status, 
could not draw the same type of caste or class distinctions as did the 
older and more exclusive churches of New England and the Middle 
Atlantic Coast. Nevertheless, they begin to make distinctions where 
Negroes, whether slave or free, were concerned. Three months after 
Joseph Pilmoor arrived in America, he wrote, 'After preaching, I met 
the Negroes apart and found them very happy.' This tendency is also 
in evidence early in Asbury's experience in America. In his Journal, 
December 8, 1772, Asbury writes, 'In the evening the Negroes were 
collected, and I spoke to them, in exhortation." 1 

While the membership of John Street Methodist Church was inter- 
racial from the first, in the lists of membership published in 1787 
whites and Negroes were listed separately. These lists give the names 
of 228 whites and 36 Negroes. St. George's Church in Philadelphia 
had also begun to list the two racial groups separately. In 1788 there 
were 270 white and 17 Negro members. 

In addition to the separate seating arrangements provided for the 
Negro members of the congregation, discrimination was shown in other 
ways. Pilmoor's Journal entry for August 9, 1772, tells of a service 
where the church was not large enough to accommodate all who desired 
to attend: 'As the ground was wet, they persauded me to try to preach 
within and appointed men to stand at the door to keep all the Negroes 
out till the white persons were got in, but the house would not near 

1 Here we see that even the great Asbury was ffuilty of making racial 
distinctions.

hold them.' 2 

In the light of these conditions it is not surprising that there 
should have developed a feeling of unrest, especially among free 
Negroes in the Northern section of the country, and a desire to have 
more freedom of expression. This was primarily responsible for the 
rise of independent Negro Metliodist denominations. 3 
In 1844 southern members of the Methodist Episcopal Church pulled 
out and formed the Methodist Episcopal Church. South. The split was over 
the issue of Negro slavery. 

When the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Methodist Episcopal Church, 
South, and the Methodist Protestant Church agreed to unite in 1939, the 
big issue was still the Negro. 

At this point. I am happy to state that the late Dr. David D. Jones 
was a member of the delegation of the North Carolina Conference of the 
]Metiiodist Episcopal Church to the 1936 session of the General Conference 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Speaking before this session of the 
General Conference. Dr. Jones said of the Plan of Union: "Everyone knows 
that the Plan is segration. and segration in the ugliest way. because it is 
couched in such pious terms." 4 

Again, I am proud to state that Negroes in the Methodist Episcopal 
Church have to their everlasting credit that the majority of the members 
pf the Negro Annual Conferences voted against the Plan to establish the 
Central Jurisdiction. For in so voting, they voted against an ecclesiastical 
arrangement that refused to accept the Church as the Body of Christ. 
For In the Body of Christ tliei-e can be no discrimination based on race, 
color or class. All Christians are one in Christ Jesus. 

SECTION III 

THE NEGRO IN THE EARLY HISTORY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

AND VIRGINIA METHODISM 
One of the most remarkable leaders in early North Carolina and 
Virginia Methodism was Henry Evans, a Negro. 

In 1859. Dr. William M. Wightman. President of Wofford College, wrote 
a book entitled. Life of William Capers, DD., One of the Bishops of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, South. In this book, Dr. Wightman gives the 
following quotation from Bishop Capers: 

But the most remarkable man in Fayetteville when I went there, and 
who died during my stay, was a negro, by the name of Henry Evans. I 
say most remarkable in view of his class; and call him negro witli un- 
feigned respect. He was a negro: that is, he was of that race, without 
any admixture of another. The name simply designates the race, and 
it is vulgar to regard it with opprobrium. I have known and loved and 
honored not a few negroes in my life, who were probably as pure of 
heart as Evans, or anybody else. Such were my old friends, Castile 
Selby and John Boquet of Charleston, Will Campbell and Harry 
Myrick. of V.Mlmington, York Cohen of Savannah, and others I might 
name. These I might call remarkable for their goodness. But I use the 
word in a broader sense for Henry Evans, who was confessedly the 
father of Methodism, white and black, in Fayetteville, and the best 
preacher of his time in that quarter; and who was so remarkable, as 

2 So you see that this matter of discrimination as:ainst Negroes in 
the Methodist Church did not begin with the Central Jiu-isdiction. It has 
been with us for a long time. How much longer, O Lord? How much longer, 
O Lord?

NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 47 

to have become the greatest curiosity of the town; insomuch that 
distinguished visitors hardly felt that they might pass a Sunday in 
Fayetteville without hearing him preach. Evans was from Virginia; a 
shoemaker by trade, and, I think, was born free. He became a 
Christian and a Methodist quite young, and was licensed to preach in 
Virginia. While yet a young man, he determined to remove to 
Charleston. S. C, thinking he might succeed best there at his 
trade. But having reached Fayetteville on his way to Charleston, and 
something detaining him for a few days, his spirit was stirred at 
perceiving that the people of liis race in th;'.+ town were wholly given 
to profanity and lewdness, never hearing preaching of any denomi- 
nation, and living emphatically without hope and without God in 
the world. This determined him to stop in Fayetteville; and he began 
to preach to the negroes, with great effect. The town council inter- 
ferred, and nothing in his power could pre^•a;] with them to permit 
him to preach. He then withdrew to the said-hills, out of town, and 
held meetings in the woods, changing his appointments from place 
to place. No law was violated, while the council was effectually eluded; 
and so the opposition passed into the hands of the mob. These he 
worried out by changing his appointments, so that when they went to 
vi^ork their will upon him, he was preaching somewhere else. Mean- 
while, whatever the most honest purpose of a simple heart could do to 
reconcile his enemies, W£S employed by him for that end. He eluded 
no one in private, but sought opportunities to explain himself; avowed 
the purity of his intentions; and even begged to be subjected to the 
scrutiny of any surveillance that might be though proper to prove his 
inoffensiveness; any thing, so that he might but be allowed to preach. 
Happily for him and for the cause of religion, his honest countenance 
and earnest pleadings were soon powerfully seconded by the fruits of 
his labors. One after another began to surpect their servants of attend- 
ing his preaching, not because they were m.ade worse, but wonderfully 
better. The effect on the public morals of the negroes, too, began to 
be seen, particularly as regarded their habits on Sunday, and drunken- 
ness. And it was not long before the mob was called off by a change in 
the current opinion, and Evans was allowed to preach in town. At that 
time there was not a single church edifice in town, and but one congre- 
gation, (Presbyterian), who worshipped in what was called the State- 
house, under which was the market; and it was plainly Evans or no- 
body to preach to the negroes. Now, too, of the mistresses thei'e were 
not a few and some masters, who were brought to think that the preach- 
ing which had proved so beneficial to their servants might be good for 
them also; and the famous negro preacher had some whites as well 
as blacks to hear him. Seats, distinctly separated, were at first ap- 
propriated to the whites, near the pulpit. But Evans had already be- 
come famous, and these seats were insufficient. Indeed, the negroes 
seemed likely to lose their preacher, negro though he was, while the 
whites, crowded out their appropriated seats, took possession of those 
in the rear. Meanwhile Evans had represented to the preacher of the 
Bladen Circuit how things were going, and induced him to take his 
meeting-house into the cu-cuit, and constitute a church there. And 
now, there was no longer room for the negroes in the house when 
Evans preached; and for the accommodation of both classes, the 
weatherboards were knocked off and sheds were added to the house 
on either side; the whites occupying the whole of the original building, 
and the negroes those sheds as a part of the same house. . . I have 
known not many preachers who appeared more conversant with 
Scripture than Evans, or whose conversation was more instructive as 
to the things of God. 

... It was my practice to hold a meeting with the blacks in the 
church directly after the morning preaching every Sunday. And on 
the Sunday before his death, during this meeting, the little door be- 
tween his humble shed and the chancel where I stood was opened, 



48 THIRD SESSION 



and the dying man entered for a last farewell to his people. He was 
almost too feeble to stand at all, but supporting himself by the railing 
of the chancel, he said: 'I have come to say my last word to you. It is 
(Jiis: None but Christ. Three times I have had my life in jeopardy 
for preaching the gospel to you. Three times I have broken the ice 
on the edge of the water and swum across the Cape Fear to preach the 
gospel to you. And now. if in my last hour I could trust to that, or 
anything else but Christ crucified, for my salvation, all should be 
lost, and my soul perish forever.' A noble testimony! Worthy, not of 
Evans only, but St. Paul. His funeral at the church was attended by 
a greater concourse of persons than had been seen on any funeral 
occasion before. The whole community appeared to mourn his death, 
and the universal feeling seemed to be that in honoring the memory 
of Henry Evans we were paying a tribute to virtue and religion. He 
was buried under the chancel of the church of which he had been in 
so remarkable a manner the founder. 5 

In 1934, Miss Elizabeth Lamb wrote a booklet entitled. Historical 
Sketch of Hay Street Methodist Episcopal Church, South Fayetteville, North 
Carolina. In this booklet she throws some more light on Evan's place of 
burial. She says. "Henry Evans died in 1810. and is buried under the church 
(hat today stands on the site the First Methodist Church built in Fayette- 
ville." 6 

On May 16, 1966, I went to Fayetteville, North Carolina and had an 
interview with an elderly woman member of Hay Street Methodist Church. 
She appeared to be well versed in the history of this church and informed 
me that the First Methodist Church to which Miss Lamb referred is now 
Evans Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. She further 
informed me that the present Hay Street Methodist Church, white, grew 
out of the "First Methodist." now Evans Metropolitan African Methodist 
Episcopal Zion Church. 

Thus, we see that Heni-y Evans, a Negro, played an outstanding role 
in the early history of Methodism in North Carolina. 

SECTION IV 

THE ORGANIZATION OF THE DELAWARE, EAST TENNESSEE, NORTH 
CAROLINA AND NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA CONFERENCES 

This brings us to a consideration of the organization of the formei- 
Delaware, East Tennessee, North Carolina, and Washington Conference of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church and the Methodist Church. I am con- 
sidering the organization of all of these conferences because the former 
North Carolina Conference and parts of the Delaware, East Tennessee, and 
Washington Conferences now constitute the North Carolina-Virginia Con- 
ference. - 1 

The Delaware Conference was organized on July 29, 1864. The first 
session was held that year at John Wesley Methodist Church in Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania. Bishop Edmund S. Janes was President and W. S. Elzey was 
Secretary. 

The East Tennessee Conference was organized in 1880 and held its 
first session in the Greensville Methodist Episcopal Church, Greensville, 
Tennessee. The date of the first session was October 15, 1880. Bishop E. O. 
Haven was President and B. H. Johnson was Secretary. 

The North Carolina Conference was organized in 1836. .According to 
the Conference Journals "its first session opened as a part of the Virginia 
Conference. But when it adjourned there were two Conferences." 

Apparently, the combined session of the North Carolina Conference 
and the Virginia Conference met in Petersburg, Virginia on February 8, 

5 William Wightman, Life of William Capers, pp. 124-129.

NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 49 



1837. (The name of the Presiding Bishop is not recorded. The Secretary 
was G. H. Leigh ■). This would mean that thp first independent session of 
the North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church was held 
on January 31, 1838. in Greenshoro. North Carolina. Bishop Morris wae 
President and G. H. Leigh was Secretary. 

For many years, the Journals of the North Carolina Conference of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church and the North Carolina Conference of the 
Central Jurisdiction of the Methodist Church have carried the following 
other pertinent history: 

At the Conference of December 4, 1844, there were 10,495 white 
members and 3.100 colored. Without consulting the wisdom of the 
latter, nearly the whole membership became a part of a new church, 
organized in May 184.5, and called the Methodist Episcooal Church, 
South. Some of the colored members entered the A.M.E. Church, some 
the Colored M. E. Church of America, but thousands turned gladly to 
the bosom of the Methodist Episcopal as it returned to the State after 
the Civil War. 

Between the years 1844, when the Church was separated over the 
s.iave question, and in 1865. when at the close of the War. the M. E. 
Church returned to shepherd its scattering flock in North Carolina, 
there was no session of the North Carolina Conference. 

The Washington Conference 

The Washington Conference was organized in the Sharp Street Metho- 
dist Episcopal Church in Baltimore, Maryland at 3:30 p.m., Thursday, 
October 27, 1864. Bishop Levi Scott v/as President and Benjamin Brown was 
Secretary. 

The North Carolina-Virgrinia Conference 

On August 11-12, 1964, at Bennett College, Greensboro, North Carolina, 
a special session was called for the purpose of organizing the North Caro- 
lina-Virginia Conference of the Central Jurisdiction of the Methodist 
Church. Bishop Charles F. Golden was President and John G. Corry was 
Secretary. 

The first regular session of the North Carolina-Virginia Conference 
was held at Bennett College, Greensboro, North Carolina, on June 3-6, 
1965. Bishop Charles F. Golden was President and Avery E. Robinson was 
Secretary. 

SECTION V 

BENNETT COLLEGE 
In her brief history of Bennett College, Miss Virginia Simmons says. 

In 1873, a parochial school for Negroes was started in the basement 
of Saint Matthews Methodist Episcopal Church, Greensboro by the 
Freedman's Aid and Southern Education Society of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church with Mr. W. J. Parker as the first principal. During 
the first four years of its existence this school was patronized only 
by local students. In 1877, however, relying upon an increasing interest 
in their venture throughout North Carolina and the rest of the South, 
the North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church de- 
cided to purchase a site for a building large enough for the school 
and a dormitory. 

In the fall of 1878 the school was named Bennett Seminary. 
Its second principal was Dr. Edward O. Thayer, In 1881, the Reverend 
Wilber F. Steele became the third principal of Bennett Seminary. Under 
his administration, the Seminary was charted by the State of North Carolina 
as Bennett College. In 1889, Dr. Charles N. Grandison became head of the 
College. He was its first Negro head. 

Miss Virginia Simmons in her history of Bennett College also says, 
"among the administrators for the fifty suceeding years were Presidents 
Jordan D. Chavis, 1892-1905, Silas A. Peeler, 1905-1913, James E. Wallace, 
1913-1915, Frank Trigg, 1915-1925." 



50 THIRD SESSION 



In 1926, Bennett College became a school devoted exclusively to the 
education of young women. In that year Dr. David D. Jones was elected 
tn the presidency. He served in tliis position until his death in 1955. Under 
Dr. Jones' leadership Bennett became one of the most outstanding colleges 
in America. Dr. Jones emphasized beauty of suiTOundings and attention 
to the individual student. 

Dr. Willa B. Player served as president from 1955 until 1966. Dr. 
Player continued the empha.es of Dr. Jones. 

In the spring of 1966, Dr. Isaac H. Miller, associate professor of 
biochemistry at IMeharry Medical College, was elected to the presidency to 
succeed Di-. Willa B. Piayer. 

Throughout the years Bennett received moral and financial support 
fiom the North Carolina Conference. The North Carolina-Virginia Con- 
ference is continuing this support. 

SECTION VI 

ALLEN HOME 

Allen Home, an outstanding high school for girls, was organized in 
1S87 by the Woman's Home Missionary Society — now the Woman's Society 
of Christian Service. Through the years the North Carolina Conference 
gave moral and financial support to Allen Home. The North Carolina- 
Virginia Conference is continuing this support.

SECTION IX 

HISTORIC CHURCHES 

Mount Zion Methodist Church, Leesburg, Virginia, has been cited 
as being the oldest continuing congregation. Their history is rooted in 
old Leesburg which was organized in 1789. However, it was organized as 
Mount Zion in 1865. 

The Board of Publications has given a plaque to Mount Zion citing 
them as the oldest continuing congregation. 

Roberts Memorial Methodist Church, Alexandria, Virginia, is the 
oldest organized congregation. It was organized as Roberts Memorial in 
1830. 

Saint Matthews Methodist Church, Greensboro, North Carolina, was 
organized in 1866. In 1871, the church moved to itr^ present location. Dr. 
Silas A. Peeler built the present structure in 1903. Saint Matthews Metho- 
dist Church is the oldest Negro church in Greensboro. 

Saint Paul Methodist. Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was organized 
in 1871. Under the leadership of the Reverend G. W. Morehead and the 
Reverend N. D. Shamburger it was rebuilt in 1903. After moving to a new 
location, the present structure was built in 1961 under the leadership of 
the present pastor, the Reverend Le Mon Mayfield. 

Saint Mark Methodist, High Point. North Carolina, was organized in 
1871 under the leadership of the Reverend Lewis Gibson. It was rebuilt in 
1928 under the leadership of the Reverend H. L. Ashe. 

SECTION X 

OUTSTANDING BUILDERS OF CHURCHES 

I have already referred to Dr. Silas A. Peeler and the Reverend 
H. L. Ashe as prominent church builders. Let me now mention six other 
leading church builders. The Reverend William E. Hairston, deceased, built 
the Union Memorial Methodist Church, Greensboro, North Carolina, in 
1952. He also built a beautiful modern brick structure at Wesley Chapel 
Methodist Church near Reidsville, North Carolina, during his pastorate 
there from 1955 until 1959. 

William E. Hairston was not only a great church builder, he was a 
man of unusual mental ability. He was a great scholar and a prophet of 
social righteousness. 

The Reverend Robert B. McRae, deceased, was probably the greatest 
church builder in the history of the Conference. He built a church and 
remodeled the parsonage in Hamlet. He built parsonages in Ramseur, 
Reidsville and Forest City. He built the beautiful modern John Wesley 
Methodist Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina, during the conference 
year 1958-1959. This Church stands as a living monument to the name of 
Robert Belton McRae. 

Saint Paul Methodist Church in Reidsville, North Carolina, was burned 
and was rebuilt in 1921 under the pastorate of the Reverend Grandison M. 
Phelps. 

Under unusually difficult circumstances, the Reverend George E. Hogue 
moved the Galilee Methodist Church in Laurinburg, North Carolina, to 
its present location and rebuilt it during the Conference year 1958-1959. 
This Church stands as a living memorial to the wonderful work of George 
E. Hogue. 

The Reverend Leander A. Brown built the beautiful Gothic Berry 
Temple Methodist Church in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1953. He will be 
remembered as a great builder as well as a churchman. 

Another prominent builder of churches is the Reverend LeMon Mayfield. 
He built the present modern Brooks Memorial Methodist Church in High 
Point, North Carolina in 1950. Under his administration. Saint Paul Metho- 
dist Church, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was moved to its present 



THIRD SESSION 



location and a magnificient church structure was built in 1961. The Confer- 
ence will forever be in debt to this noble servant for his great contribution 
as a builder of churches. 

SECTION XI 

EDUCATORS 

I have already dealt with Dr. Silas A. Peeler, Dr. David D. Jones, 
and Dr. Willa B. Player as educators. Let me now briefly mention three 
other educators produced by the Conference. The Reverend John P. Morris, 
deceased, served as vice president of Bennett College. 

Dr. Gilbert H. Caldwell was instructor at Bennett College in 1919. 
He was dean of Bennett College in 1920-1922. He served as dean and pro- 
fessor at Samuel Huston College. Austin, Texas, from 1923 until 1926. He 
was director of relicjious activities and professor of religion at Samuel 
Huston College in 3952-1953. He served as director of religious activities 
and professor of religion at Claflin College, Orangeburg, South Carolina. 
1953-1954. 

Another educator of the Conference is the Reverend Marshall McCallum. 
He was head of the department of religious education at Claflin College. 
Orangeburg, South Carolina, in 1930. He was associate professor of religion 
and ethics at Allen University, Columbia. South Carolina, in 1938-1944. 

SECTION XII 

OUTSTANDING PREACHERS 

Prominent preachers produced by the Conference are: the Reverend 
William M. Wells, deceased, the Reverend Marshall !\IcCallum. and the 
Reverend Richard L. Clifford. William M. Wells was a prince of the 
pulpit. Marshall McCallum is a scholar-preacher. Richard L. Clifford 
preaches with a deep understanding of the Christian faith. 

SECTION XIII 

WHAT OF THE FUTURE? 

What of the future as Methodism faces the problem of segregation? 
The cliurch is the body of Christ. And thre can be no segregation in the 
body of Christ. "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things 
are passed away; behold all things are become new." The true church is 
a body of people who have become new creatures in Christ Jesus. There 
can be no segregation among those whose lives have been made new by the 
transforming power of the Holy Spirit. So, as Methodism faces the future, 
she is challenged to be the body of Christ. 

What of the future as Methodism faces the move toward an ecumenical 
church. Whether we like it or not, ecumenicity is the wave of the future. 
In all probability before another Conference year rolls around the dele- 
gates to the next November Special Session of the General Conference will 
have voted for the merger of Methodists and the Evangelical United 
Brethren. This means they will have voted for the establishment of a new 
church — The United Methodist Church. Ecumenicity is the wave of the 
future. 

The Consultation on Church Union (COCU) met in Dallas. Texas on 
May 2-5, 1966. Official delegates from eight major Protestant denominations 
agreed on a set of basic principles for their merger into a twenty-four 
million member denomination. The next step will be the drafting of a 
detailed plan of union and its ratification by the participating denomina- 
tions. 

The members of the Consultation on Church Union arc: the African 
Methodist Episcopal Church, the Evangelical United Brethren, the Disciples 
of Christ, llie Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church in the United 
States, the Protestant Episcopal Church, the United Church of Christ, and 
the United Presbyterian Church. 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL C0NFET?ENCE 53 

The fact that the Methodist Church is ecumenically minded was shown 
at the recent Methodist Bicentennial Celebration in Baltimore. Marvland. 
The nis^ht of April 23, 1966. was known as Ecumenical Nitjht. Addresses 
were given by Lawrence Cardinal Shehan, Roman Catholic Archbishop 
of Baltimore and Dr. Charles C. Parlin, outstanding Methodist layman 
and one of the presidents of the World Council of Churches. Both Cardinal 
Shehan and Dr. Parlin expressed their hopes for the day to come when 
even Roman Catholicism, and Protestantism would be one church. 

Finally, what of the future as we move into an age where man is ventur- 
ing into outer space? In the light of the vast universe which modern science 
has revealed to us. it is reasonable to assume that there are great peoples 
and great civilizations in outer space. It may well be that long before the 
year 2166 we will have come into contact with these great peoples and 
civilizations. It may well be that some of them will reach us first. 

I believe with Dr. Robert J. McCracken, pastor of famous Riverside 
Church in New York City, when in his book. Putting- Faith to Work, he 
says, "We who live on this planet still tend to think of ourselves as the 
center and crown of creation and the principal concern of Providence. We 
must become accustomed to the fact that we are peripheral, not central; 
that we are neither alone in the universe nor unique. If the scientific 
theorists are right, there are millions upon millions of other beings, not 
unlike ourselves, perhaps further advanced than ourselves. How does 
this affect the Christian doctrine of man — his origin, his nature, his 
final destiny? It is inconceivable that the truth about God. embodied 
and incarnate for us in Jesus Christ, is our sole possession to the exclusion 
of other possible beings elsewhere. If other planets are inhabited, and by 
members of civilizations similar to ours, we who believe in the God and 
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ cannot but hold that He has revealed the 
same love and truth that we find in Christ to all, anywhere, who are able to 
receive them." 

Let me close with the words of our Bicentennial hymn: 

God of the generations, we offer Thee our song 
Of praise and adoration, for through the centuries long 
Thy grace has led our people on life's ascending ways; 
And now, God of the ages, v/e lift our hymn of praise. 

We thank Thee for the high road our faithful fathers trod, 
For witness of the Spirit that they were born of God, 
For circuit riders called by Thee, who traveled far and wide 
To tell the matchless story of Jesus crucified. 

Man now seeks other planets; he walks in stellar space; 

He plumbs the ocean's darkness, all knowledge to embrace; 

But yet he yearns to find Thee, to hear Thy voice so stilL 

How shall Thy church make answer, her mission to fulfill? 

Where greed and envy flourish, where hate holds evil asway, 
Where poverty and sorrow delay God's holy day. 
There let Thy Church speak boldly, reach out her loving 

hand. 
And lead men of all nations to find the Promised Land. 

Amen.

THE COMPOSITE REPORT OF THE DISTRICT SUPERINTEXDENTS 
NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA CONFERENCE 

Bishop Golden, members of the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference 
and friends: 

In keeping with the presedent established two years ago, we are again 
biinging to you a composite report of the District Superintendents of the 
North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference. First of all, we are grateful to 
Almighty God for His wonderful love and care and for the glorious 
privilege of making our witness through the instrument of His Church. We 
are also grateful to God for the dynamic leadership of Bishop Charles F. 
Golden, for we realize that "in the time of turmoil giants arise, some to be 
saints and some to be satanic." Fortunately, the raw material God has given 
Charles F. Golden is the quality required for saints. During such a period 
of turmoil in oui- world and in The Church, Bishop Golden has proved to 
be "a man of groat courage and character." We note his long, intelligent 
and vigorous battle to maintain peace, civil rights and religious freedom 
in this land of ours. 

During the recent illness of our Bishop, our prayers went up to God 
on behalf of him and Mrs. Golden. We are grateful to God for his wonder- 
ful recovery. 

We call to rememberance the names of those who were called from our 
ranks this year and have entered the Church triumphant. Later today, we 
will honor the memory of those who have departed. 

To those who are coming into our Conference, we welcome you, and 
to those who are retiring, we thank you for a long and rich life of service 
to humanity. 

During the past conference year, much emphasis was placed upon the 
ministers and laymen working together as a team; total performance was 
the key word. Therefore, the pastors and laymen have worked together 
more cooperatively to implement the challenge of the Church. "One 
Witness in One World," with special emphasis upon "Unity and Renewal." 
"Unity and Renewal" are concepts that are giving thousands of local church 
members new dimensions in their discipleship. Many of the churches in 
planning their year's program gave much consideration to "Unity and 
Renewal" as a means by which to accomplish the real purposes of the 
Church. Someone has said that "Unity comes as a part and consequence of 
the prosess of Renewal; it comes as churches jointly submit their old life 
and structures to the judgement of the Lord, asking if they faithfully 
serve his purposes in today's world and looking for his design for the 
Church which they are creating. Renewal begins when we experience what 
God through Christ has done for us. We see the Church as people of God 
who are living witnesses of God's revelation." One of the surest sign of 
Renewal is the emergence of the laity as partners in ministry. This has 
been the sign in many places through out our Conference and there is 
growing concern in other places. 

In the realm of the Local Church Cooperation, the sign is also hopeful. 
Attitudes toward the whole idea of Local Church Cooperation are changing 
with the times. As a result, merger of congregations, regrouping of 
churches, extended ministry and the training of local church lay leader- 
ship have taken place on each district. 

Throughout the districts in the Conference, much emphasis has been 
placed upon total performance in the local church. Therefore, the pro- 
grams of all of the commissions have shared in this emphasis with notable 
increase in performance in areas of Missions, Evangelism, Stewardship, 
Christian Social Concerns and Educational Ministry. The report of the 
Conference Ti easurer will reflect to some degree the progress of the work 
of the Commissions on IMissions and Stewardship and Finance. The Statis- 
tian's repoit will also reflect to some degree the progress and achievement 
in the area of increase in membership. However, due to a conscious effort to 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 61 

correct and give an adequate account of the local churches' membership the 
mcrease in membership is not so noticeable. 

*u .1" the area of Christian Social Concerns, the commissions centered 
their attention on the basic question: How should the church relate itself 
to government, poverty, and mental health? Through forums debates 
discussions, question and answer periods and jointly working' with the 
other commissions and organizations of the church and in a church-wide 
study course, these basic concerns were kept before the local church. 

Our Board of Education, under the leadership of the Executive Secre- 
tary Rev. R. L. Clifford, has established a working relationship with our 
local churches which is proving helpful in the work of Christian Edu- 
cation Some sub-district meetings were held on "A New Curriculm" and 
tools for learning. The new Methodist literature is being accepted and 
used increasing y all across the Conference. Also, a number of Christian 
Workers' Schools were held on the district level. 

AT H^t. ^°^?^ churches participated and cooperated witn the Western 
North Carolina, the North Carolina and the Virginia Conferences South- 
eastern Jurisdiction, in a District Conference on Christian Education At 
this time emphasis was upon the "New Curriculum for Adults," Vacation 
Church School, and the utilization of new materials in general Many of 
the membership of our churches will attend the summer programs at 
Lake Junaluska such as camping for Junior High Boys and Girls Young 
Adult assembly, Senior High Officers' Workshop, Senior High Christian 
Witness Assembly and Regional MYF Workshop. 

The women, through the Woman's Society of Christian Service and 
Wesleyan Service Guild, have performed in an execellent manner across 
the Conference. They have sponsored and co-sponsored church-wide study 
courses and district and sub-district training sessions. 

The performance of the Methodist Men has been equally gratifying 
due to the general concern of the Conference Director and Conference 
Lay Leader, and especially the cooperation of the District Lay Leaders. A 
District Conference was held on each district. 

Each District Superintendent has informed his member of the far 
reaching decisions confronting us at this time. 
General Church. 
A quotation — 

"You can not buy the Holy Spirit or bargain for it. 
You cannot acquire it in five or ten easy lessons. 
You cannot affirm that if you want it badly enough 
and believe m it completely, its power will be yours." 

Nevertheless, it is our task to project that which only God in heaven 
knows to be m the hearts of men, to and for this august body. 

If one were to look and statistically account for all material set forth 
this year by the General Church, one would be knee deep in miles of 
church pronouncements. However, the major concern at present is the 
abolishion of the Central Jurisdictional as matter of form and not fact 
It was stated by this body that this problem should be attacted at the local 
church level. Without preparation of congregations, and dialog between 
cultural groups, and the setting up of commissions for cummunication with 
this type of projection in mind we feel this is where the war will start. 
From the top, Methodist for Church Renewal have urged a "spirit of 
openness" as the Methodist and Evangelical United Brethren Churches 
move toward the United Conference of 1968. In a recent statement by the 
National Sterring Committee of (MCR) pointed out that although its 
members objected to the manner of presentation of the Plan of Union at 
Chicago m November, and some of its contents, they would not try to undo 
that decision. Instead, they called for clear commitment of the whole 
church to the elimination of forced, "structural" segregation by race in 
It ^u ^-^^ • "^^^ abolishion of the jurisdictional structure of race in the 
Methodist Church does not alter in anyway the fact. What is the fact? 



62 THIRD SESSION 



Part of it is this. An unprejudiced analysis of man's social life, Reinhold 
Nieburr has discovered (Moral Man and Immoral Society), must com« to 
the conclusion that no matter how moral individuals may be, corporate 
interaction is intrinsocally immoral. It is part of the tragic character of 
human nature that man is unable to conform his collective life to his in- 
dividual ideals. Niebuhr sees man as plagued by the fact that he cannot 
do the good he intends (Romans 7:18). 

The Annual Conference — 

The way in which we picture ourselves determines to a large extent 
the direction and outcome of our lives. We tend to become what we con- 
ceive ourselves to be. Though often unconsciously images do make a 
difference in our working for the better life. The New Testament is full 
of images to describe the Church; it may be a rock, or a bride, or salt, or 
mother or seed. The response men make to the very existence of the 
church depends largely upon what their picture of the church is. If they see 
this Annual Conference as a group red brick buildings that are located 
in two states, and with no purpose, no vigor, nor leadership of dynamic 
potential, they react one way to it. If they conceive of it as a bastion of 
defense against some cultures that have not considered the period of their 
struggle against all of the socio-economic odds begot by bias social systems, 
they react another way to it. If they see this Annual Conference as one 
with outlook, outreach and persistence ; asking the. world to see its orgin 
and its instrumental means, that cause decay of fellowship and brother- 
hood, and from which was wrought a struggle amidst their humanity, their 
family and the brotherhood, which in its self was no thing less than greed 
and power for the pleasure of power, to the weakness of the Annual 
Conference, they will react another way to it. 

We call now, if not too late, for future evaluation of all agencies, 
boards, commissions, and committees to see that this conference will 
address itself to its best effort for its best interest. If we do not look 
now upon this conference which is our responsibility, in there offices or 
and offices,, your future history will not afford you such a privilege again. 

The District Level 

Self-examination, the phase of the District Program which is a must 
in the "NOW" and the future. 

What are we doing on the Districts? 

What is the shape of the local congregations? 

Where are they located and why are they there? 

What is the direction of movement of the congregations? 

The gathered congregation has one mission and one major function. 
The mission is to prepare the people for the Kingdom of God. Mission 
is at the very heart of the life of the congregation. AIT that happens in 
the gathered life of the congregation is equally determined by the mission. 
The components of the preparation for mission are worship and study. 
The expression of participation in mission is witness and service. Worship 
is the conscious response of the congregation to God who created us all 
and who calls us to his people within his mission. 

Study is equally a part of this gathered congregational life. The com- 
pass of this study may include the Scriptures, the history of your church, 
your neighborhood, your history, church history and why you are a 
Methodist with its laws and doctrine. It is wise to relate all things biblical 
or classical with the present. Know your town, your city, your school system 
and political powers. Seen in this light, the congregation in worship and 
study is a training center, a preparing community, a staging area for the 
mission which is central to its life. The most important thing to do is to 
know your job in the Church and your church and witness in unity with all 
churches. 

What are we doing for Vacation Bible Schools? 

Have we had preconferences? 

Have we had faculty meetings? 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFEREN CE 63 

Have we set forth our summer calendars? 

Have we Christian Worker Schools or convocations? 

Have we officially listed our children for camp? 

Have we secured counselors for summer jobs in the inter-conference 

camps? 

Have we set up summer retreats for the Offical Boards? 

Have we taught know your church? 

Have we been briefed on what Christian conferences are for? 

Have we stressed the use of the youth ministry? 

Have we had meetings on the adult studies on new cirriculum? 

What campaign have we on church pride, or Church clean up? 

Have we listed our Audio — Visual Aids on Commission projects? 

If we are not doing — we are not a Church. 

We Recommend 

1. That the mid-year meeting of the Conference be developed into a 
Churchmanship Seminar under the leadership of our Resident 
Bishop. 

2. That Churchmanship Seminars be held in each District and/or 
Sub-District. 

3. That a District Conference be held in each District. 

4. That we continue to emphasize total performance in the local 
church. 

5. That local churches report total performance quarterly to the district 
and area offices. 

I would not wish to conclude this report without a word of appreciation 
for my colleagues on the Cabinet. I appreciate the contribution each has 
made in the writing of this report, and especially for their full coopera- 
tion throughout the year. 

In conclusion, our sincere, thanks to the Ministers and Laymen of 
the North Carolina-Virginia Conference for their cooperation and support 
during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. W. Gwyn

REPORT OF THE AREA DIRECTOR 

Thank you for this privilege of reporting to you my activities as Area 
director. 

I would also like to preface this report by expressing my most sincere 
appreciation for the sound advice and the friendly cooperation so willingly 
given to me by Bishop Golden, the District Superintendents, Pastors and 
laymen of the Conference as I have attempted to perform the responsibilities 
entrusted to me. I trust that we will continue to cooperate as we face the 
perplexing days of tomorrow. 

The Conference year 1966-67 has passed most rapidly for me; yet, in 
contemplation I find it somewhat difficult to recollect all that has taken 
place. There, let us begin with our most recent event, The Nashville-Caro- 
lina Area Convocation, which was held at St. Paul Methodist Church, 
Winston-Salem, North Carolina, April 4-6. About 300 persons participated 
in this two and a half days of fellowship exploring what will be the witness 
of the Negro church within the inclusive Church. The theme of the Con- 
vocation, "The Witness of the Church in Transition," was well dealt with 
by several outstanding speakers and in seven (7) work groups. 

During the months of February and March, I visited several District 
Conferences and meetings where I solicited your continued support of the 
Area's programs. 



64 THIRD SESSION 



Within this Conference year the Area has met its commitment to the 
Jurisdictional Courses of Study School and the Area Scholarship Committee 
has awarded several scholarships to our Supply Pastors and our Seminary 
men. This was possible because of your continued financial support of the 
Area's programs through your Conference budget. Many of the persons 
who are continuing to prepare themselves as ministerial leaders and who 
were the recipients in these programs are of this Conference. 

The Voice, the bi-monthly publication of the Area, continues to share 
the news and the events of the Area's churches with the General Church. 
I wish to remind you, however, that we can only share that which we 
receive. Therefore, if there are newsworthy events which are sponsored 
by local church groups. District groups or Conference groups, please send 
them to The Voice along with any pictures of the events. In this way ideas 
are given and received. 

Thank you for your attention and may God bless you all. 

Vance Summers, Jr. 

REPORT OF ACTION OF THE COMMITTEE ON 

INTER-JURISDICTIONAL AFFAIRS 

OF THE 

NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA CONFERENCE 

Your Committee takes great pleasure, Mr. Bishop Golden, and mem- 
bers of the Conference in making the following progress report. 

The Committee has worked in three major areas, plus others and by 
reason of such other chairman of The Board of Education, Brother 
McCallam; The Minimum Salary Commission; Brother Peters; The Chair- 
man of The Board of Pensions, Brother Clifford, also a member of this 
Committee; the Secretary of this Committee, along with your chairman 
have met with similar committees of the North Carolina, Virginia and 
Western North Carolina Conference of the Southeastern Jurisdiction. 

The Committee found from last year's work that: (1) There was a 
difference in the minimum salaries paid by each of the conferences, (2) 
That the pension rates were higher, and (3) The support for Institutions for 
higher learning was handled in a different fashion from our method. 

The Committee worked separately with the Western North Carolina 
Conference, The Virginia Conference and The North Carolina Conference; 
and then at the end of April 14, 1967 all four groups met at St. Paul's 
Church, Winston-Salem, to be sure there was a joint understanding of 
all of the conference in discussion. 

Meetings were held at: Statesville, North Carolina on November 30, 
1966 and January 12, 1967; Richmond, Virginia, January 16. 1967; The 
Chairman of all Committees met in Raleigh, December 30, 1966. 

From our meetings the following was resolved: 

(1) That in the event of merger — "That all members of merged con- 
ferences receive pensions at the same rate for all prior years of 
service as paid by the conference embracing the area where the 
service was rendered and the pensions for all subsequent years of 
service be paid at a uniform rate by the merged conferences where 
the service is rendered." 

(2) That the minimum salary shall be based on the minimum in 
existence in the regional conferences at the time of such merger. 

(3) There was a concensus that the merged conferences would be 
willing to continue to support Bennett College of not less than 
S10,000.00 per year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Richard C. Erwin, Chairman 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 65 

STATEMENT FROM PRESIDENT OF 
THE BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Bishop Golden, and members of the North Carolina-Virginia Annual 
Conference: 

We approach this significant Conference session with multiple emo- 
tions. We are poignantly aware of the magnitude of our task in promoting 
Christian Education in a New Day. Because of our awareness, our energies 
have been directed toward promoting the program which we feel is most 
pertinent to our needs. Our emnhasis has been directed to this end, 
precisely-the educational needs of our people at the Local Church level, 
correlated with significent subsidary and supportive programs at specific 
connectional levels. 

Our Executive Secretary and our staff deserve copious praise for 
their dedication, their diligence, their concern, and their labor. The people 
of our Churches are to be commended for their receptiveness, their 
energetic participation, and their faith in our objectives. The entire Con- 
ference warrents commendation for unreserved cooperation. The follow- 
ing pages constitute the report and projections of your incumbent of 
Education. 

James E. McCallum 
Board President 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION 
A. EXECUTIVE SECRETARY AND STAFF 

It is always a privilege to report some of the activities which have 
taken place in the area of Christian Education as promoted by your staff, 
charged with the responsibility for the execution of the program of the 
conference. 

One of the major projects has been to engage our staff in pursuing 
certification in the basic courses of each age-group. It is a pleasure to 
announce that Mrs. Godfrey L. Tate has gone beyond the goal and has 
certified as a Laboratory instructor in the area of Kindergarten. Rev. James 
H. McCallum and Rev. Marshall McCallum are progressing toward certifi- 
cation in their respective age-group courses. 

We have completed plans for a Conference Leadership School, July 
10-14, 1967 at Bennett College, Greensboro, N. C. You may see brochure 
for details. This school is a part of the emphasis on up-grading the teaching 
level in the local church. We believe everyone is capable of learning when 
he desires to do so. In view of this it is our responsobility to provide 
training opportunities. Leaders in Adult education in all fields are notic- 
ing an increase in interest within the past 18 months. Much has been 
said concerning the "population explosion." Apparently, we are now on 
the verge of a "knowledge explosion." In a few years much of the know- 
ledge we have today will be obsolete. At this time "Adult Learning in a 
Changing World"' is more necessary than ever. 

Among the major projects this year we have held a Type D Laboratory 
School and workshop on the Eastern District. In various sections the 
Executive Secretary has conducted workshops on the new youth curricu- 
lum scheduled for 1968. Workshops have been conducted on the new 
adult curriculum scheduled for 1967. This emphasis will have to be continued 
during the summer. The Executive Secretary attended all the district 
conferences and where permitted promoted the program of Christian 
Education in the conference. Mrs. Godfrey L. Tate and the Executive 
Secretary will be part of the staff at the Southeastern Family Life Con- 
ference, Lake Junaluska, July 5-9, 1967. We have two youth and one adult 
along with two youth and one adult from the Virginia Conference attend 
an inter-racial meeting in Memphis, Tenn. As a part of their Christian 
Witness, they participated in a voter registration drive in Mississippi. 
Your Executive Secretary has also participated in the Regional School of

Missions, Lake Junaluska. N. C; Youth Workshops in the Virginia Con- 
ference: meetings and enterprises of the Association of Executive Secre- 
taries of the Southeastern Region. 

Last Conference year the Executive Secretary sent to pastors whose 
churches were not using Methodist materials a letter calling their attention 
to this matter. It is expected that this year a more extensive promotion of 
the material will be undertaken. This is a part of the idea behind the 
Leadership School. A study of the ordering of material for the quarter 
September, October, November, 1966. 
Shows the following: 

231 — Schools in Conference 
154 — Use some Literature 

22 of 154 do not use Children's 
24 of 154 do not use Youth Literature 
15 of 154 do not use Adult Literature

that it will improve in this coming quarter 1967.

NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 69 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON HIGHER EDUCATION 

Mr. Chairman: 

Senator J William Fulbright has described our time as an age of 
revolution without prededent or parallel. It has also been labelled a "period 
of contrived confusion and moral indifference." The contemporary era has 
also acquired the description as being one of trauma and travail. 

None of the preceding descriptions set the present era in a good light 
But the sage of Concord, Ralph Waldo Emerson, has given some equipment 
with which we can px'obe into our situation and gain some insight and 
direction, and see some good amid the turbulance. He said "If there is 
any period one would desire to be born in, is it not the age of revolution 
when the old and the new stand side by side and admit being compared- 
h!lf^i %^'^^''^'?.^^ all men are starched by fear and hope; when the 
^ii.r 9^^ii•^^•°^ the old can be compensated by rich possibilities of the 
new era? This time, like all times is a very good one if we but know what 
to ao with it. 

fhic^r.S^^T^^v.^^"'"^".i'^-^f-'' ^^V'^^tion has anticipated our situation at 
this point. The aim of Christian higher education is to enable us to know 
that persons may become instruments of righteousness in a world of 
trauma and confusion. 

.r.rr.^\J^ ^^ {u"^ ■ ^^"Yiction that Christian higher education must do 
something for the individual which education without a specific Christian 
orientation does not do. It must provide a firm moral and spiritual foun- 
dation for and an interpretation of education. Christian higher education 
ll^^f ■Tv?''-^' f""^ "° l^f *^^," ^^'^ ^^"^^^ engaged in education, expressing 
its faith m terms of knowledge and wisdom. Education has not done its 
whole duty when it communicates a skill. It must also fill the world's 
spiritual vacuum by bringing understanding of the hearts and souls of men 
and of the divine laws governing the universe. Unless institutions of 
higher learning inspire the student to gain an understanding of the nature 
of men and the purpose of life, they are not providing a balance well- 
rounded education. 

• J^u^' ^^§he^ education that is truly Christian, does. It is the "plus" 
Ifo. f^ fl"" ^l"cation producing the informed mind and the transformed 

Hi^HHoH t^""^^,^^'" ^^^. "^^J^^ °^ -^"^^ Wesley, "uniting the two so long 
divided knowledge and vital piety." 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That the Conference give greater attention to higher education, particu- 
larly the work of The Wesley Foundation. 

2. That the Conference Board of Education furnish the leadership in 
getting the local churches to observe in a meaningful way, Methodist 
Mudent Day, Student Recognition Day, Christian College Sunday, and 
Ministry Sunday. 

(2) It is further recommended that we continue to observe Race 
Keiations Sunday so long as it remains a part of the General Church 
program. 

3. That the Churches now in the North Carolina-Virginia Conference 
continue their support of Bennett College after transfer and merger. 

/o/ James T. Jones, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE COMMISSION ON CHRISTIAN VOCATIONS 

In the experience of Christian discipleship the idea of vocation is 
central. It always means that the individual is being called, and that he 
must answer, if he is to become what he potentially is, and if he is to fulfill 
his destiny in the world. 

In this day of fast change and new ways of facing vocational choice 
mere is need for understanding and cooperation between the counselors 
in the Public School with the Local Church leaders such as Pastors and 



THIRD SESSION 



workers with youth. Remember the young people served are the same. The 
young people are daily facing increasingly difficult problems when trying 
to find meaning and purpose in life. Of special importance is the decision 
as to whether they should go on to college or make the decision to go 
directly into an occupation. 

From counseling for Church related-occupations four distinguishable 
marks of Christian vocation are cited for consideration. 

(1). The divine call is present, and is being answered whenever a job, 
role, career or profession carries on beyond himself to the other. This 
means that in working the person actually serves his society in a creative 
way. He moves from using to caring. 

(2). This is present, and is being answered whenever our work carries 
us beyond soloist activity to an experience of shared community. One can- 
not experience genuine vocation and remain a virtuoso or solist. It is in 
communion with a creative community that we move beyond individualism 
to a fuller experience of real self-hood and genuine vocation. 

(3). Authentic vocation appears when one's style of working moves 
him beyond mere static repetition to dynamic becoming. To be a man 
means to be continually growing, transcending oneself. If we clutch at 
the past by merely repeating it, the self dies and vocation disappears. 
Vocation means being open now to the calling of Gk)d's Spirit. 

(i). Real vocation occurs whenever a working person is willing to 
experience his unconscious motives and to bring into the light of conscious 
scrutiny and awareness. In such a time, a job takes on new quality and 
depth of meaning. 

Every year the Methodist Church needs: 2,100 for the Pastoral Ministry 
and specialized ministries; 350 for the Missionary Service at Home and 
Abroad; 5.000 for the Health and Welfare Services of the Church; 250 for 
College Teachers and Student Religious Leaders, and Workers in some 
seventy professional fields. 

Your Commission recommends, that an active Committee on Christian 
Vocation be organized in each local church, and on the district level as 
required by the 1964 discipline. 

That the district committee hold training sessions to train local com- 
mittees. 

That record be kept up to date for all young people from junior high 
through college who show any concern for church related occupations. 

That we hold one training session on the conference level each year. 

Respectfully, 

S. Lloyd Townsend, Chairman 
J. J. Patterson, Secretary 
Your Commission on Christian 
Vocation

COLLEGE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Director's Annual Report To 

The Interconference Commission 

and 

The Board of Directors 

1966-1967 

Since on November 30, 1966 the Wesley Foundation at A. and T. 
College will have been in operation ten years, I think that it is in order at 
this time for me to give a brief historical statement. The Wesley Founda- 
tion at A. & T. College was organized at Union Memorial Metliodist on 
Friday evening, November 30, 1956. Mr. David Morehead was elected 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGII^'fA ANNUAL CONFERENC E 71 

chairn-;an of the board of directors. Mrs. Veda Stroud was elected secretary 
and Mr. C. E. Dean was elected treasurer. Miss Geneva . Holmes suc- 
ceeded Mrs. Veda Stroud as recording secretary in 1964. Mrs. Mary 
Purnell succeeded Mrs. Doris M. Parker as financial secretary in 1965. 

Student presidents: The first president was Mr. John Andrews, a 
member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The second president 
was Mr. Paul Reid. a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion 
Church. Tlie third president was Mr. David R. Dunlap, a member of the 
Methodist Church. The fourth president was Mr. Harry Bartee, a mem- 
ber of the Methodist Church. The fifth president was Miss Carolyn 
Bov/den, a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The Sixth 
president was Miss Bernice Mitchell, a member of the Methodist Church. 
The seventh and present president is Miss Shirley Freeman, a member of 
the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. 

Directors of the Foundation: The Reverend William T. Brown was 
elected first director on November 30. 1956. He was succeeded by Dr. Edwin 
Edmonds. The Reverend John G. Corry followed Dr. Edmonds in 1958. The 
Reverend William T. Brown is present director. He succeeded the Reverend 
John G. Corry in 1969 and was elected full time director in 1964. 

A word about the History of the Budget: We begin with a budget of 
$500.00 on November 30, 1956. Our budget as of this date is $6,765.00. 

This year for the first time we have adult members of the African 
Methodist Episcopal Cliurch and the African Methodist Episcopal Zion 
Church serving on our board of directors. The Reverend L. S. Penn, 
pastor of Bethel Church, represents the African Methodist Episcopal 
Church and Professor John C. McLaughlin, retired, of the social science 
department of Agricultural and Technical College, represents the African 
Methodist Episcopal Zion Church. 

The Wesley Foundation has agreed with the Canterbury Club (The 
Episcopal Student Organization on the Campus) to sponsor some worship 
services and some study and discussion groups jointly this year. In light 
of the fact that the Methodist Church, the African Methodist Episcopal 
Church, and the Episcopal Church, along with several other denominations 
are now working tov/ard union, this cooperation between the Wesley 
Foundation and the Canterbury Club is most timely. 

The meetings will be held at Bethel African Methodist Episcopal 
Church and Redeemer Episcopal Church. Bethel is the headquarters of 
the Wesley Foundation and Redeemer is the headquartrs for the Canterbury 
Club. These two churches are located one block from the Campus and are 
next door to each other. 

We also have a meeting place on the Campus. The college administration 
furnishes us a meeting place free of charge. A room has been provided for 
us in Harrison Auditorium. We hold two meetings there each V/ednesday 
evening. The first meeting is from 6:30 p. m. until 7:30 p. m. and the 
second meeting is from 7:30 p. m. until 8:30 p. m. I also use this room on 
Tuesday and Thursday afternoon for counseling. 

Study Group: We are studying in detail the Book of Genesis. This 
will be for the entire year. We are using the following references: The 
Abingdon Bible Commentary, Helmut Thielicke's How The World Be- 
gan: Man in the 1st Chapter of The Bible, and Nahum M. Sarna's Under- 
Standing Genesis. 

Discussion Topics: We have discussed the following topics this year: 
•'Jazz in Church Worship," "The Black Power Movement," "The War in 
Vietnam" and "The Role of Shina, Russia and The USA in Asia." 

Religious Emphasis Week: February 26th through March 4th was 
Religious Emphasis Week at the college. The Wesley Foundation partici- 
pated by sponsoring a panel discussion on: "The Death of God." 

Book Reviews: The following books have been reviewed and discussed 
this year: Leslie D. Weatherhead's The Christian Agnostic, Thomas J. J. 
Altizer's The Gospel of Christian Atheism, Thomas J. J. Altizer's and

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EVANGELISM: 
NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA CONFERENCE 

Bishop Golden and Members of the Confeernce: 

When, in 1939, the Methodist Church through compromise created the 
Central Jurisdiction it not only humiliated and embarrassed the Negro 
constituency, but imposed upon the Negro Minister of the Church the 
distasteful task of preaching "salvation through segregation."' 

Dispite the tremendous handicap under which he was forced to labor 
for 30 years, he has successfully held his own through the miracle of 
vigorous preaching and evangelistic effort. 

Today, we meet in what is probably the final session of the recently 
constituted North Carolina-Virginia Conference as a part of the Central 
Jurisdiction. 

Our sphere has been limited, but the gospel of love and brotherhood 
we have preached has transcended the confining walls of this racially 
segregated jurisdiction to be heard on the legislative floors of the Church 
and around the earth. 

Though change is eminent and the future uncertain our calling re- 
mains the same — preach the word until every valley shall be exalted: 
every high place be made low; and the walls that separate man from 
man; and nation from nation shall crumble; and the kingdoms of this 
world shall become the Kingdom of our God. 

J. David Kelly, Chairman 
June 1967 

BOARD OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL CONCERNS 

Christian Social Concerns, is not a 'Johnny-come-lately in the Metho- 
dist Church. It started with John Wesley in the 18th Century. 

Wesley intei'est embraced our present program of social concerns. He 
set up welfare activities, an unemployment bureau, and a loan fund to 



NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 73 

help men get started in small businesses. He denounced the slave trade, 
fought the liquor traffic, and regarded war as an improper way of settling 
international disputes. The gospel Wesley preached had a social con- 
science and expression. It was the whole gospel for the whole man in the 
whole world. 

This has been a busy and profitable year for all concerned Methodists. 
Most of our churches have taken advantage of opportunities to work and 
study in inint Christian enterprises. A few pastors had personal encounters 
through the process of pulpit exchange on Race Relations Sunday. 

We commend the soirit of the Western North Carolina Conference for 
the invitation to their Senior High activities at Lake Junaluska. N. C. The 
Senior High officers' WorkshoD will be held June 14-24th. The Senior 
High Witness Assembly June 2R+h - July 1, 1967. We urge each local church 
to send a delegate to these activities. 

We are t^hankful for the livp^ which h-'ve be^n informed and enriched 
in our conference by th*^ de^pgat'^s who attended the South-eastern 
Regional Conference on Christian Social Concerns, and the UN China 
Seminar. 

This has been a hist'^rical. siffnif'^ant vear for Me<-hodicts. The Metho- 
riict rhuvf.^ spfl Th*^ T7T?nncroi,-p^l TTnited brethren Church, held snecial 
General Conferences in Chicago in Nov^mbpr. On the agenda of both 
rnnferencps was the nuestion: Can we justify our son^irate existences? 
When dPC'S'on time came, those who favored union of the two churches 
prevailed. The delpgates to th^ i^int session knew that thpir decisions 
wpre not final, but they joined hands and sang "Blest Be The Tie That 
Binds." 

On January 1. 1Pfi7. the Commission on Tnter-iurisdJctional Relations 
in its mepting in Chicago, authorized the prenaration of a resolution 
which is knovim as "The Document." "The Document," discribes the 
action of the Methodist Church to eleminate racial structures and to 
develop an inclusive Church. 

Wo recopnizp the progress that has been made and is being made 
toward making our dreams a realitv. for the estabishment of an inclusive. 
TTnifpd Methodist Church, particularly in North Ca'-olina-Vireinia. Westp^n 
North Carolina, Holston. Tennessee. Memphis, Kentucky and Louisville 
Anniial Conferences. Recognizing a need to repent for the life of concern 
and involvement of the other C^inferences in the South Central and 
Southeastern Jurisdictions, we call upon the peonle of God to provide 
informed, enlightened leaders in the solution of racial problems. 

We resDPCtfullv request Bishops: Paul N. Garber, Earl G. Hunt, 
Walter C. Gum. Charles F. Golden, and their Cabinets to pledge their 
best efforts in working out all remaining adjustments for the merger of the

Inter-Conference Relations as an expression of earnest determination 
to do everything possible to develop greater undrstanding and brother- 
hood in all aspects of Church Life. 



VIETNAM 

We, the people of the United States have become so obsessed with 
communism that we have over extended ourselves as a world power. 

We are great Americans. To be an American, European and Asian 
power simultaneously is to find one'^s self woefully limited in material, 
intellect and moral resources. 

We are peacemakers. Jesus said, "Blessed are they, for God shall call 
them his sons." We must ask ourselves the following questions: Is it 
our responsibility to put down aggression by force when and where ever 
it starts? Is it our responsibility to stop the spread of communism or 
other isms which we do not like and keep the peace throughout the 
world? 



74 THIRD SESSION' 



As Americans, we must learn that tiiere are limitations and restraints 
on the applications of our immense power. This is in keeping with the 
American tradition of limitations on the power of the government. We 
must not be overcome in our moral principles with stopping communism 
with the prophetic idea that we Americans have a deep obligation to 
iuhance and spread democracy throughout the worM. 

As i>eople of this great republic, misguided by men of war, we have 
set as our goal a population of six-hundred thousand in Vietnam, with an 
expectation of finding peace at the end of the rainbow. In the long run. 
Communist China will inevitably exercise the same kind of influence 
over Southeast Asia as the United States now does over the Western 
Hemisphere. 

Having lost more than ten-thousand in Vietnam, we should remember 
the words of Pope Paul VI \Vho so eloquently put it: "We cry to them in 
God's name to stop." Men must come together and work out concrete 
plans and terms in all sincerity. A settlement should be reached now, 
even at the expense of some inconvenience or loss, for it may have to 
he made later in the train of bitter slaughter and involved great loss. 

BE IT RESOLVED: 

A. That we cali upon Christendom to join us in continual prayer for 
all conflicts in the world. 

B. That we thank God for men like UN-Secretary General U Thant, 
who is making an all out effort for peace and world order. 

C. Tliat we stop the bombing, obliteration and massive slaughter of 
the lives of those whom we believe to be children of God. 

D. That we work for the fulfillment of our prayers by responding 
to the National Council of Churches in its appeal for debate and 
action concerning Vietnam. 

E. That we support the United Nations in its untiring efforts to bring 
about reconciliation of the nations of the world. 

F. That we WTite President Johnson, our Senators and Representatives, 

urging them to stop the bombing in Vietnam. 

G. That we remember that further escalation could lead to the direct 
involvement with other nations to a point of no return and a 
wider war with dangerous consequences.

CONFERENCE LAY LEADER'S REPORT 

Bishop Golden. Members of the North Carolina-Virginia Conference: 

The activities of my office have been enlighening and challenging 
this past year. As a member of the inter-Conference Commission on 
merger, 1 have attempted to interpret to myself and the laity what would 
be the best course to take in this day and time, a time when the Christian 
Church is faced with professing and demonstrating that the philosophy of 
Jesus Christ is the answer to many problems facing man and nation during 
this period of history. 

U is the aim of the Laity of the North Carolina-Virginia Conference to 
show, by example, that the laymen do exemplify the priesthood of the 
individual. 

The District Lay Leaders and their Associates have put forth earnest 
effort to promote the program of the General Board of Lay Activities. 
IMuch praise is due these faithful workers along with the pastors and 
members. 

During the past year, I have visited each district and responded when 



>;iORTH CAROLT?>IA-VIKGINIA ANNUA L CONFERENCE 75 

tailed to secure and present charters and fill speaking engagements. 

Layman's Day was duely recognized and I am of the opinion that the 
Laymen were inspired and challenged by this observance to move out and 
•work. 

The Methodist Men's Organization is progressing effectively. New 
charters are being secured and every effort is being made to see that 
none are invalid. Every district has a goal, namely, "A Chartered Metho- 
dist Men's Club on every Charge." Brother Edie Leak, the Conference 
Director of Methodist Men has given his time and talent to really make 
this organization a vital part of the Conference program. 

As we stand on the threshold of a merger of our Church, and it is 
very likely that we shall be organized as we are now, I want to thank 
this Conference for giving me the opportunity to serve you and whatever 
the change or changes may be. I only pray and hope some where an in 
•some way I may continue to serve mankind, for only by serving man can 
we serve God.

REPORT OF TKE BOARD OF MISSIONS 
NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA, CONFERENCE 

BishQp .Gol(Jen and m^^mbers of the North Carolina-Virginia Annual 
Conference; your conference Board of Mission submits the following 
report : 

With an awareness of the great need for Christian witnessing around 
the world, we have come to this Conference with niany accomplishments as 
well as many failures. Nevertheless, we thank God for the witness which 
we have made through His Church. To strengthen its witness the Methodist 
Church set a specific goal to be reached as result of the new mission 
study, on the theme, "The Dilemma of Affluence and Poverty." The goal 
is that the Church takes new steps based on some new understandings of 
the Christian's responsibilities in this time of twin Paradoxes: Poverty 
in the midst of affluence in the United States and United States affluence 
in the midst of world Poverty." : 

"Mission implies miovement, obedience to command, a task, and a goal 
worth achieving. Mission study implies a search for new facts, new 
meanmgs based on fact, and new movement based on new understanding." 

The Church of Jesus Christ was intended to be and is the great m.elting 
pot of humanity. Americans, the sons of opportunity; Europeans, the blue 
blooded sons of noble lineage; the sons of ancient India, high caste and 
Parish; Africa's ebon hued sons of misfortune: the bushmen of Australia 
and New Guinea; the Isolated sons of the Seven Seas; these all bow in 
humble penitence and faith at the feet of Jesus Christ, and arise with a 
new found peace: heirs of a new world; mem.bers of one family, the Church 
of the living God. 

Early in the Conference year the District Missionary secretaries in 
cooperation with the District Superintendent, held- workshop on missions 
and study groups in introducing the new mission study on Affluence and 
Poverty. As a result many local Churches throughout the Conference con- 
ducted Church-wide schools of missions with notable results. 

The Board held its Annual Fall meeting October 7, 1965 at Union 
Memorial Methodist Church. Greensboro, North Carolina at which time the 
Mission Aid Program for 1967-68 was approved as follows:

REPORT OF THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY 
NORTH CAROLINA-VIRGINIA CONFERENCE 

Bishop Golden and Members of the Conference; 

On August 11-12, 1964, at Bennett College, Greensboro, North Carolina, 
in a special session, the North Carolina Conference and segments of three 
other Annual Conferences — the Delaware, the East Tennessee, and the 
Washington — became organized as the North Carolina-Virginia Conference. 
Under the dynamic leadership of Bishop Charles F. Golden, assigned to 
the newly constituted Nashville-Carolina Area, there quickly developed a 
working fellowship which has wrought well. 

The Historical Society of the North Carolina-Virginia Conference 
recommends that, should this be the final session of this body, the 1966 
Official Journal of the Second Session of the North Carolina-Virgrinia Con- 
ference become a part of the historical documents of whatever Annual 
Conferences may be involved in the merger. The 1966 Official Journal 
contains the comprehensive "History of the North Carolina-Virginia Con- 
ference of the Methodist Church" by William Thomas Brown, a member 
of this conference. We feel this record to be worthy of preservation by 
the Methodist Church. 

Should we here furl our banners let it be with a sense of deep 
satisfaction and profound gratitude to Almighty God for having lived 
and worked as a part of this historic unit. 

J. David Kelly, Chairman 
1967 

REPORT OF THE TELEVISION, RADIO AND FILM COMMISSION 

Bishop Golden, Members and Friends of the North Carolina-Virginia 
Conference: 

If this commission is to be effective it must have the support of every 
member of this conference. We have an opportunity to reach more people 
than ever before through these media of communication. The Methodist 
Television Valuation Project offers a means of involving the whole con- 
ference. We enlist the support of all in the implementation of this worthy 
project, and as an indication of our concern the attached resolution is 
offered. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John E. Blackwell 
Vice Chairman 



I^ORTH CAROLmA-VrRGINlA ANN UAL CONFERENCE 79 

RESOLUTION TO T. R, F. REPORT 

Whereas, the General Television, Radio and Film Commission of The 
Methodist Church has launched a TELEVISION VALUATION PRO- 
JECT designed to help Methodists use and influence television creative- 
ly, and 

Whereas, your Conference Trafco organization believes that Methodist 
individuals and families in this conference should be encouraged to 
evaluate the moral, ethical, and cultural impact of television on their 
lives, and thus to express m,ore responsibly their proper role as 
Christians in determining what is broadcast and what the viewing 
experience may mean to the individual, and. 

Whereas, General Trafco has recommended that all Methodist in the 
nation work together toward a concentrated expression of interest 
and concern in the month of October of 1967, therefore, 

BE IT RESOLVED: that the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference 
designate the month of October. 1967. as "Television Valuation Month" 
in this Annual Conference; and, 

BE IT RESOLVED: that the ministers and layment of this Annual Con- 
ference, at every level of administration, be encouraged to make it 
possible for every Methodist member and constituent in the conference 
to participate full and creatively in the TELEVISION VALUATION 
PROJECT, by securing and distributing the free resource materials, 
and by creating opportunities for personal preparation in every local 
church in the conference. 

REPORT OF INTERCONFERENCE COMMISSION 

on 
COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY RELIGIOUS LIFE 

Under the chairmanship of Bishop Matthews a special committee of 
'the General Board of Education was formed in 1964 to study the campus 
ministeries of Methodism throughout the country. That study has been 
■completed and the report is in. Your Interconference Commission is giving 
careful consideration to the findings, conclusions and recommendations 
of that significant report, and together with the campus ministers will be 
shaping our work in the days before us by the direction we are able to 
gain. 

The contemporary spirit of denominational cooperation is very much 
alive in the work of North Carolina Methodism on our campuses. New 
areas of common concern are discovered, and new ways of common action 
are resolutely devised. Where, for example, one denominational group has 
a good house in which students may mieet and another does not have such a 
house, the one house may be employed for the service of both groups. At 
Duke University where a number of houses stand together cheek by jowl, 
students and leaders are now shaping programs to be participated in by 
all groups and meeting together at a particular time in the house that is 
best suited for such a program as is being offered. 

It is sometimes felt that there is a division of purpose between the 
campus ministry and the local church. The Interconference Commission is 
by no means unaware of this feeling nor unconcerned by it. In our meetings 
we talk about it, sometimes at disproporionate length. Yet a hard look at 
the work over our state indicates, we think, that there is close cooperation, 
generally speaking, between the near-campus churches and the campus 
ministry. A word of tribute is in place here to the ministers and members 
of churches attended by students, for their interest in those students, and 
even in some notable instances for their contribution of substantial sums 
of money for the support of the campus program. The campus ministers 
and boards of directors are appreciative of this concern. Local church 
ministers preach to hundreds of students regularly and engage in counsel- 
ing as needed to a degree not often recognized. The sober truth is that 
there is close cooperation between the local church and the campus 



THIRD SESSION 



ministries. The reason we have though otherwise is that student groups 
and their leaders are more critical of the local church than others are. 
and people like those of us who come to Annual Conference are not as 
readv as wp should be to look at ourselves or to be patient with our 
youthful critics. 

The "cost-price squeeze" is having its effect on campus ministries. To 
carry forward our work along the lines we have followed these past 
years costs more than the three annual conferences are prepared to pay. 
Campus ministers are underpaid. Even meager secretarial assistance is 
often too expensive to employ. Program expansion is out of the question 
if it involves any additional costs. Yet the conference appropriations to the 
Interconference Commission remain about the same year by year. We 
are not comolaining. just reporting. Having to make out with what we 
now are receiving, however, means an alteration in the pattern of our 
ministry. If we cannot employ more ministers, we shall ask for more 
volunteer help. If we cannot adequately furnish and maintain Wesley 
Foundation buildings we shall invite other denominational groups that 
do not have buildings to share ours and contribute to their maintenance. 
It appears we shall also be compelled to withdraw those small funds now 
appropriated to campus groups on church colleges and limit our funds 
to the Methodist work on state campuses. 

A word of exhortation: Let us be aware that our campus ministry is 
an authentic ministry. The Church at work on the campus is the same 
Church engaged in the same work as the Church on the corner of Main 
and Maple. Let us be grateful to God that He calls men to the difficult 
ministry of the campus. And let us be grateful to Him, also for the lay 
men and women who answer His summons faithfully to serve as directors 
of our campus ministries. 

The members of your Interconference Commission on College and 
University Religious Life herewith express our thanks for this privilege of 
serving our Church.

Rev. L. A. Brown, Treasurer, 

North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference, 

Greensboro, North Carolina. 

We have examined the statement of recorded cash receipts and cash 
disbursements of the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference for the 
period June 3, 1965, through June 2, 1966, in the manner and to the extent 
outlined below. 

Cash on deposit at June 2, 1966, was reconciled with the balances 
reported by the bank and savings and loan association. We were unable to 
trace individual recorded receipts to the deposits. We inspected paid bank 
checks representing recorded disbursements for the period. No vouchers, 
invoices, or other evidence supporting disbursements were submitted for 
our inspection. We did not request independent confirmation of recorded 
receipts from the various contributing churches and individuals. 

As the scope of our examination did not include independent confir- 
mation of cash receipts and as vouchers, invoices or other evidence support- 
ing disbursements were not available, we are unable to express an opinion 
upon the statement of recorded cash receipts and cash disbursements.

Great Time To Be Alive." That title expresses the genuine feeling of 
Chr'-^^iar Women as we face up to the fact that we live in a time when the 
sweep of history has caught up with us; when we have unprecendented 
opportunity of seeing, hearing and participating in the historical events 
that will strengthen the Christian witness, will improve our image as 
Negro Methodist, will awaken us to the fact that we have great potential 
in the woman power, in the Church of Jesus Christ. 

As we prayerfully and carefully evaluate the steps we have taken 
toward unity this conference year, may we this day re-dedicate ourselves 
in Christian' faith to act more effectively under God, for what we believe to 
be His will as we dare to make our contribution toward a world of larger 
justice, "with a true fellowship of love, with malice toward none." 

ACTIVITIES: 

1966 — Schools Of Christian Mission: 

The Interconference School Of Christian Mission was held at Pfeiffer 
College Misenheimer, N. C. August 1-5, 1966. More than 250 dedicated 
Women of The Western North Carolina Conference and The Central and 
Western Districts of The Carolina-Virginia Conference shared a great 
fellowship of study-Recreation and prayer. (Getting To Know Each Other). 
Those responsible for planning the school are rejoicing over the fact that 
God is blessing this undertaking for beyond their dreams. There is marked 
growth in understanding, respect, fellowship and goodwill. This is only the 
beginning of a rich and inclusive fellowship. 

The Eastern District reported fair attendance at the North Carolina 
Conference School, at Methodist College Fayetteville, N. C. The Presi- 
dent in light of the reception and fellowship shared by those attending, 
attendance will be better this year. 

The Virginia District had increased attendance and participation in 
The Virginia School. The District President and The District Secretary 
of The Commission on Missions were members of the planning committee. 
This second year of participation found Women of the Virginia District 
participating in many state-wide programs. 

CHURCH WOMEN UNITED: 

Methodist Women in both North Carolina and Virginia have been 
actively engaged in projects of Church Women United. 

SPECIAL DAY OBSERVANCES: 

Women across racial and denominational lines have engaged in ob- 
servances such as The Week of Prayer and Self-Denial, The World Day of 
Prayer, Approved Study Courses of The Woman's Division, and studies 
of Church Women United, as well as Community problems. 

CHURCH-WIDE MISSION STUDIES AND CONVOCATIONS: 

Conference and District Secretaries of Missionary Education and 
Service have worked cooperatively with Conference and District Secretaries 
and Chairmen of Missions to train and promote Churchwide studies, at 
the local Church level. In many instances Children, Youth, Laymen and 
Laywomen have participated in these Church-wide Studies. Let us strive 
to have this activity in every local Church during the Conference year 
1967-1968. 

OUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT: 

We are deeply grateful to each District for having paid in full your

o our very efficient District Treasurers who gave such loval supfSt a a 
time when it was so much needed. But for their dedication and loyaltv 
the conference treasurer could not have carried on. 'oyaiiy 

CONFERENCE OFFICERS TRAIN AT REGIONAL SCHOOL: 

One of our goals for this quadrennium was to have all conference 
attend a regional School Of Christian Mission. Last Summer al Conferlnc^

bring us a challenge and give direction for our work this last year of the 
quadrennium. Let us receive the information, and make it a vital part of 
our planning for the new Conference year. 

STEPS TOWARD UNITY: 

Yes, we are taking steps toward an inclusive fellowship. There are 
times when we seem to be standing still, perhaps there are times when 
we will stand still. There are times when our steps will be very short, 
there will be times when we will take long strides. 
As we walk, let us walk hand in hand with God: 
In Faith, In Prayer, In Love 
In Wisdom, Uprightly, Consistently, In Humility 
In His paths, In The Truth, In The Light, 
In The Spirit, In The Fear Of The Lord 
In The Newness of Life 

♦ * * * 

If we follow where He leads us 

We will never go astray; 
He will lead us where He needs us 

And go with us all the way. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Jettie D. Morrison 
President.

112 THIRD SESSION 

D. RESOLUTION FOR THE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL 

STRUCTURE AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF GREATER 

UNDERSTANDING AND BROTHERHOOD IN THE 

METHODIST CHURCH 

Adopted by the General Conference of The Alethodist Church in its 
special session November 10, 1966, Chicago, Illinois. 

Presented to the Annual Conferences of The Methodist Church 
for consideration and vote in their 1967 Annual sessions. 

"1. By the adoption of this Resolution each Annual Conference, each 
Jurisdictional Conference, the General Conference, each Collece of Bishops 
and the Council of Bishops pledge their best efforts to eliminate as soon 
as nossible al' forms of racial structure from the organization of The 
Methodist Church, and further pledge to do everything possible to develop 
greater understanding and brotherhood in all aspects of church life and 
work. 

"2. Each Annual Conference and Ju'-isdictional Conference which 
has been part of a merger of churches or Conferences formerly separated 
by racial distinctions pledges its best efforts to work out all remaining 
adjustments, to use the ability of both clergy and laymen wherever they 
can be most effective in the work of the Church, and to serve all people 
without regard to race. 

"Where such mergers have not yet been realized, each such Conference 
expresses its earnest determination to v.'ork toward such merger at the 
earliest possible date and hereby pledges to establish a Committee on 
Inter-Conference Relations composed of an equal number of ministers, 
laymen and youth to implement the recommendations and resolutions of 
this report and recommendation of the Plan of Action for the elimination 
of the Central Jurisdiction adopted by the 1964 General Conference and 
that each board and agency of the Church be alert for opportunities to 
assist each Committee in every possible way. 

"3. Whenever such mergers hereafter take place the continuing An- 
nual Conference will: 

a. Accept into its membership, with all the same rights, privileges, 
status and obligations, all ministerial members (whether on trial 
or in full connection) appointed to charges located geographically 
within the continuing Conference, and all ministerial members under 
sp'^cial appointment or retired ministerial members who hold Quarterly 
Conference membership in a local church located geographically 
within the boundaries of the continuing Conference. 

b. Insofar as possible, the ministerial and lay persons now serving 
on boards and agencies of both of the merging Conferences shall 
serve during the current quadrennium on like or similar boards and 
agencies of the continuing Conference, and thereafter membership 
in all such Conference boards and agencies shall be open to all 
persons on the basis of their qualifications without regard to race. 
In the event any Disciplinary provision limiting the number of 
members of a board or agency should prevent the continuation of all 
members during the current quadrennium, the Cabinet shall determine 
which members shall continue, in the spirit of this Resolution, being 
careful to provide for a continuing representation of both of the former 
Conferences. 

c. Within the boundaries of such a continuing Conference oppor- 
tunities for spiritual and intellectual growth in Christian service shall 
be made available to all without regard to race or oclor. Such equal 
opportunities shall be provided particularly in such aspects of Con- 
ference programs as activities of the Woman's Society of Christian 
Service, Wesleyan Service Guild, youth work, leadership training enter- 
prises and the Boaid of Lay Activities.

E. RESOLUTION FOR THE TRANSFER AND MERGER 

OF THE TENNESSEE-KENTUCKY CONFERENCE WITH 

CONFERENCES OF THE SOUTHEASTERN 

JURISDICTION 

WHEREAS. The Methodist Church has from time to time declared its 
willingness and intention to work for the full achievement of an inclusive 
ChiTch at all levels of life and structure, and 

WHEREAS, in keeping with this ideal, the Central Jurisdictional 
Conference has from time to time reaffirmed its ocmmitment to the funda- 
mental goal of a society and fellowship of Methodist Christians completely 
uncircumscribed, at all levels of church life, by distinctions of race or color, 
and 

WHEREAS, the pursuit of this fundamental goal has been clearly re- 
flected in all plans and programs of the Central Jurisdiction aimed at 
implementing Amendment IX of the Constitution of The Methodist Church, 
and 

WHEREAS, though inclusiveness was the basic assumption of sections 
three and five of the Commission on Inter-Jurisdictional Relations' reso- 
lution adopted by the 1966 General Conference, as they refer to the 
Tennessee-Kentucky Confernce and the five respective Annual Conferences 
of the Southeastern Jurisdiction to which the Tennessee-Kentucky Confer- 
ence is related geographically; we have found it contrary to both conscience 
and conviction to support the whole resolution, because to do so would 
be to vote transfer-merger for ourselves, while voting segregation for our 
brothers in other sections of the church, and 

WHEREAS, racially segregated Annual Conferences in Regional Juris- 
dictions are incompatible with a truly inclusive Methodist Church, the 
Tennessee-Kentucky Conference unequivocally affirms its opposition t» 
segregated Annual Conferences in Regional Jurisdictions, and 

WHEREAS, all of the Annual Conferences of the Southeastern Juris- 
diction, related geographically to the Tennessee-Kentucky Conference of 
the Central Jurisdiction, have expressed by resolution and invitation 
their good faith and intention to receive by transfer-merger all facets of the 
Tennessee-Kentucky Conference of the Central Jurisdiction, 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT: 

1. "By the adoption of this Resolution by the requisite vote in the 
Tennessee-Kentucky, in each of the Holston. Tennessee. Memphis, Kentucky 
and Louisville Annual Conferences of the Southeastern Jurisdiction, in all 
of the Annual Conferences of the Central Jurisdiction, and in all of the 
Annual Conferences of the Southeastern Jurisdiction, the Tennessee- 
Kentucky Conference shall be dissolved not later than the close of the 
1968 session of the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference and not sooner 
than the 1967 special session of the Central Jurisdictional Conference. In 
the event conditions make a special session of the Central Jurisdiction 
impossible, the merger shall take place following tlie 1968 regular session 
of the Central Jurisdictional Conference. Each church formerly part of the 
Tennessee-Kentucky Conference shall thereupon be merged with and be- 
come a part of the geographic conferences in which its several parts may

F. RESOLUTION FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

^ Whereas the dissolution of the North Carolina-Virgmia Conf°renc- is 
imrnent either under resolution of the Commission on Tnter-Jurisd^r^tional 
Kelations as adopted by the special adjourned session of the General 
S.^'^t/Tr^f ^^^^^ Methodist Church of 1966 under the plan of union of 
the Methodist Church with the E. U. B. 

Whereas in contem.plation of such action, it appears that the sa.'e of 
the Episcopal Residence of the Nashville-Carolina Area of the Central 
Jurisdiction of the Methodist Church must be considered and acted upon 

Whereas the North Carolina-Virginia Conference of the Methodist 
^nurch is the legal entity in whose name the legal title to the Epi.'^^copal 
Residence is vested. Said real property being located at 3513 Geneva Circle, 
Nashville, Tennessee; 

Be it therefore resolved that this Conference delegate to the Trustee 
Board oi the North Carolina- Virginia Conference such power and authority 
as needed if and when necessary to sell said property 

>,. K '^ ?T°^^-^ ^^ Trustees of the North Carolina-Virginia Conference is 
hereby authorized and empowered to sell the real property as herein above 
mentioned and is further directed to execute a contract, deed and any 
other necessary legal documents in behalf of the North Carolina-Virginia 



116 THIRD SESSION 



Conference of the Methodist Church conveying title of the property to 
such person or persons whom in the opinion of the Trustees have offered 
to pay a price commensurate with the current market value of the 
property. The Trustees are hereby directed to have said property appraised 
by two (2) competetent independent real estate appraisers which appraisals 
shall be used as a basis for determing the market value of the said 
property. 

The proceeds from the sale of this property shall be distributed of such 
Conferences who have an equity in the same as their interest may appear.
